The “CASE IH Thunder in the Dirt Outlaw Pulling Series” kicks off in twelve short weeks in Ravenna, Nebraska and questions abound surrounding the upcoming season in regards to the Corona Pandemic and how it may affect the upcoming season. We will remain focused on what is shaping up to be the most exciting season yet for the Outlaws and we are hopeful that Covid 19 will be behind us and allow for the season to remain on schedule as planned starting in June. Stay tuned, stay safe, and pray for friends and neighbors that may be affected by this pandemic and let’s do our part to eradicate it, put it behind us, and prepare for the most exciting Outlaw season ever!
The 2020 Rule-book has been posted to the website under the Pullers section. The 2020 Fuel and Water Order form has been updated as well.
The OTTPA is proud to announce BRAUNGARDT AG as the newest sponsor of the Outlaws for the 2020 pulling season.
“Through our new partnership with OTTPA, Braungardt Ag Services is looking forward to building and developing relationships with Outlaw members and fans”. We are a family owned agricultural business that focuses on the needs of farmers in an ever-changing market.
Our business model differs from the typical retailer, we work with every major chemical manufacturer as well as generic companies. Our diversity in the crop protection market allows us to service a large area of the Midwest. This presents unique opportunities for us to combine products that are both the best agronomically as well as the most cost-effective.
As a full service facility we provide access to seed from Stine, Agrigold and Lewis Hybrids. We offer chemical and fertilizer application in Northeast Missouri and aerial helicopter application of fungicides covering Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.
We strive to be the best in the industry in product knowledge and service. As every year is different, we have the ability to adapt to the season to ensure that every farm’s needs are met. We would appreciate the opportunity and encourage you to give us the chance to work with you when your making crop input decisions. Charles McCurdy – Braungardt Ag.
“Braungardt Ag. is a perfect fit for the Outlaws, our pullers, and fans. The competition is tough when describing Outlaw pulling, pullers have to be pro active and adapt to get an edge on the competition on the track. Braungardt has managed to achieve and maintain that edge with their drive to stay ahead of the competition and their unique business model that caters specifically to their customers. We are excited about the upcoming pulling season and we look forward to working with the good folks at Braungardt Ag.” Ron Stone – OTTPA
“This is our third year working with Braungardt Ag Services and couldn’t be happier. We switched from having all of our chemical and fertilizer custom applied to doing it ourselves. After a lot of shopping and pricing they were the cheapest and our customer service could not be better. The knowledge source is a huge help for us. We have a great relationship and look forward to a them being a great sponsor for Outlaw Pulling Association.”

OTTPA would like to thank Adam Vaske for his dedication to the organization over the last three years. Adam informed us last spring that he wanted to spend more time with his kids as they had become more involved in sports and traveling teams during the summer months and therefore asked of the possibility of someone taking over some of his responsibilities. Ron Stone was hired in October to take on some of these responsibilities and Adam decided to stay on to help with the transition. With summer just around the corner Adam has decided to step away from the leadership team of the Outlaws to spend more time with his kids focusing on their sports programs. I now feel that Ron is ready to take over the position and all questions pertaining to the schedule or social media should be directed to him. We wish Adam all the best and would like to thank him for his dedication and hard work over the past three years with the Outlaw leadership team .
